In 1998, Greg zig-zagged 130,000 miles across the USA, while trying to hold down a full-time job, aspiring to reach at least 700 species of birds in one calendar year. "The Big Year," a novel by Mark Obmascik detailed his travails alongside two competitors. The book was later turned into a movie of the same title that starred Jack Black, Steve Martin and Owen Wilson!

Woo-hoo! Tour #6 of 11 one-week trips for my Big Year Tours with Wildside Nature Tours starts today! I love the view from town above! We will start counting birds as soon as we pick up participants. Our total species for the year stands at 391. Our goal is 500 for the year. We should surpass the 400-mark on this tour. Our tours are to help raise money & awareness in support of the ABA Young Birders. Stay tuned for daily updates here.
